  • 220 g All purpose flour
  • 115 g Butter
  • 25 g Hermesetas Granulated Sweetener
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 120 g 0% Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Ground ginger
  • 1 Orange (zest and juice)
  • 3 tbsp Almond milk (you can use any milk though)
  • 100 g Dried cranberries
  • 50 g Dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C/390°F and grease a 12 hole muffin tin.
  • In a stand mixer, or a large bowl, beat the butter and Hermesetas Granulated Sweetener together until creamy and well mixed.
  • Add the yoghurt, eggs and vanilla and beat.
  • Add the orange zest, orange juice and milk and mix gently.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt.
  • Pour the wet ingredients in to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add the cranberries and dark chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Divide the batter between the muffin tin and put in the oven for 30 minutes.



  • You could use fresh cranberries instead of dried, but it might change the texture a little.
  • The dark chocolate chips in these muffins do make them sweet, but you could easily leave them out.
  • Mix things up a bit and swap the cranberries for dried cherries or sultanas.
  • Try using white chocolate chips instead of dark.
